UKIP party political

It surprises me to say it, but the UKIP’s party political broadcast was rather good. It opened with a fun riff on War of the Worlds, before moving on to the usual extravagant promises about what could be done if only we left the EU. Much of it was bunk, of course, but at least it was optimistic bunk – a stark contrast to the Tory election strategy of the last week or so. And Nigel Farage reminded us all that he’s the only prominent UKIPper with whom you might want to have a pint.
